CAN WE HELP YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

ROTARY CLUB OF DONCASTER ST.GEORGE’S CHARITABLE TRUST
COMMUNITY GRANTS SCHEME 2018
GUIDANCE NOTES
CAN WE HELP YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Over the last thirteen years the  Rotary Club of Doncaster St. George’s, as part of its efforts to  support and be of service to the local community has made grants to over ninety local charities and community groups. In 2017 we made such grants to 26 different organisations, these grants totalled over £21,000 in all. The grants are made possible by our local fund raising activities, such as our annual ‘Dragon Boat Race’, ‘Father Christmas Float’ and ‘Classic Car Show’.

We are seeking again this year to make donations and the Trustees have agreed to raise the usual limit for consideration  of a grant to up to £1000. We seek to support organisations which may operate on a small budget or in a particular locality or community or for whom such an amount of money would make a real difference.



Applicants can apply for more than £1000 for special cases but our resources are limited and we may not be able to fund the full amount requested. 

We are again keen to hear from groups who may be in the early stages of their development and for whom ‘seed corn’ money would help them get started, or other groups who find raising financial support difficult. We should also like to hear from groups who have a particular project that they need to finance. 



The Club has traditionally supported charities and organisations that help children and young people in one way or another but the community grants are not exclusively for the use and benefit of children and young people. Over the years grants have been awarded to a wide variety of groups and charities including e.g. a pre-school playgroup for children with autism, organisations helping people with health problems or physical and learning disabilities, support for a dyslexia support group, a disability awareness group, a local bereavement support group, a youth group in a deprived part of the borough and the Hospital Radio Service at DRI. Groups who have received or applied for grants from us in the past are welcome to apply again.
